HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Gorleston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Gorleston property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Gorleston property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I'm unsure about the justification for getting a full structural survey when looking into a substantially modified terraced house in Gorleston rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Although periodically still described as Structural Surveys by many agents and buyers - they are now defunct and have been renamed Building Surveys Choose the Building Survey for the property described. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if buying a post fifties unmodified Gorleston house of normal construction materials. Bear in mind that some survey no go areas exist

with any residential survey as a surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the structure of the building or survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there may be a risk of asbestos Artex concealed in the property. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous structured mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as garage roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in shed roofs for example.

All forms including white are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken never to remove asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your Gorleston surveyor should mention suspected asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Traditionally built property

We are buying an older renovated farmhouse in Gorleston. Will the building's age be a problem?

Use of traditional methods can sometimes be an issue, and Gorleston property employing traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs. If you are uncertain, speak to your surveyor for further advice.
